Picked this up last weekend. The previous owner said it had flight gear in it before he obtained it. He was also very excited about the Japanese Occupation 100 Philippine Peso note he found tucked...

I didn't realize Irving was doing tours of death camps. That's interesting.

Why is he, an expert on the Third Reich, doing tours of these sites if he believes there was no death camps there?...

I've studied the Gustloff for nearly 20 years, and have never heard a satisfactory answer to this question.

From what I have read, when the Soviets went down to it in the 1950s (it was suspected...

Yes, according to the source, these were all recovered from a rag-picker in the 1950s, a variety of zeltbahn scrap, presumably from some factory. It's an odd mix of different patterns. More will be...

Thanks guys. I'm going to pick up the rest of this stuff. Hopefully there will be enough variation from these small pieces to get a good selection of original cammo specimens.

Unknown Fur-Lined Coat

Hopefully someone can help ID this.

Reminds me a bit of a Russian bekesha, but not exactly. The fabric appears to be Soviet Bloc military-type. Fully lined with rabbit fur, the collar is...

No, it will not fit an MP40.

It will fit in a British Lanchester or Sten though.

Very nice condition on this mag. Maybe drop me a line if you ever decide to sell it!

Those subcaliber devices are hard to come by now. I considered doing as you have begun with my RPG-7 (actually an Iraqi Al Nasirah) but I can't find one that doesn't cast a fortune.
